With all the stuff in the news about alleged corruption within FIFA, it looks like it could be the end for the organisation. This would also spell the end of FIFA as a football/soccer game franchise. The people behind PES would love this. What are your thoughts? Are you a FIFA or PES fan? (Personally I don't play football games).

The last good Fifa was Fifa 09 and it was pretty much the only good Fifa ever. PES has been just as bad in recent years. Honestly I love football games but there's nothing to play.

What?

If you followed it you'd know that the head has been cleared of any wrongdoing and that it's some of the lower tiered spaces who are dealing with this. Even if all charges land there's no way it'll be the end of FIFA, it's too strong of an org playing the world's most popular sport.

If the IOC is still running strong after all their problems FIFA's wont even slow it down.

FIFA 10 and 11 are far better games then FIFA 09

With the new physics system for players controlling the ball FIFA 12 looks to be the best one in the series

Um, if the major countries footballing bodies decide to break away from FIFA, it WILL be the end of FIFA.

Because they are doing and because they don't want to spend millions bidding to host the World Cup when the whole process is corrupt. It's all big news at the moment.

FIFA is going nowhere, some people will get burned for it and new regulations will be put in place, but the organization isn't going anywhere.

Except the fact that the league's 4 largest sponsors are sticking with it and telling the smaller sponsors the same and that the highest officials don't have anything against them now and that many are saying that the league will be stronger once this is resolved.

So no, I don't know why anyone would be afraid of FIFA going anywhere

FIFA is going nowhere. And FIFA 09 was def. not the last best one. Especially since FIFA 10 and 11 just basically did minor adjustments to 09 which helped it.

What league are you talking about? The fourth largest sponsours are sticking with them...and the largest three? Officials don't have anything against them? Is that why the English FA, Scottish FA and scottish FA have abstained from voting in the presidential election? Or maybe the affore mentioned football assosiations are in talks about their future with FIFA. Here, a news story to read: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13599008.stm P.S. I think you are the only person in the World who has any faith in FIFA. :)

The league's 4 largest sponsors are supporting them and asking the smaller ones to do so as well. What are you talking about the 4th largest sponsor and what about the other three?

Coke, Adidas, Anheuser-Busch, and Visa all said they're "sad disappointed" and all backed FIFA. McDonalds and Sony hasn't even said anything (then again with Sony's failures the past two months they don't have room to talk about someone else screwing things up)

"Based on history, one would not expect the sponsors to do much more than issue statements in favor of ethical behavior and opposed to unethical behavior," said Marc Ganis, president of consulting firm Sportscorp Ltd.

So there you go, the top 4 said they wont do anything and the other two don't say anything and no one thinks they're in trouble.

HERE'S ONE OF THE MANY STORIES COVERING THAT

The ONLY person saying FIFA wont survive is Blatter and that's only if he's not reelected president. If he does win the presidency again he says FIFA will be fine.

It's a last chance scare tactic and nothing more. FIFA's not losing it's sponsorship and once these changes are done it'll be stronger then before

You keep talking about 'the league'. What league are you talking about??? Coca cola, Adidas, Emirates, Visa all being vocal about their concern but HAVE NOT said they won't do anything/stick by FIFA. Even with sponsorship they're nothing without the faith of the World's big football nations.

I don't know how much you know about football but if there's something that i learned is that if you are powerful enough in that business you are corrupt and you will never be taken down. So i wouldn't worry much.

And i believe fifa will still sell alot, people still love football and afaik it has been gaining momentum over PES.

They'll never stop making the best sports game in the world that churns millions of pounds each year. They're a corrupt organisation but not that corrupt to ignore franchising and producing a clearly very popular game each yearbecause the greed within FIFA is huge.
